The Financial Accounting System

Businesses need to record transactons in the financial accounting system for practical purposes:

  • To quantify items such as sales, expenses and profit.
  • To present the accounts in a meaningful way so as to measure the success of the business.
  • To provide information to the owner of the business and to other stakeholders(eg the bank manager, who may be providing a loan).
